During a lazy Saturday, I happened to come across the NBC show "The Match Off" which is about two match makers trying to set one person up. And I think, Oh, I haven't really thought about a match maker. Well, I did a few years ago but it was expensive. After watching the show I realized this is probably a good way to met a decent person with long term possibilities. So I just checked out a few matchmakers in the NYC area. Wow, they shattered my dreams. One focuses setting up men with women, another one was between 5,000 - 10,000 dollars. HAHA. Yeah, I can't afford groceries. Others don't have any sort of prices listed (probably for a good reason) but I can't fill out questionnaires and/or go there and be like, oh are you crazy? Maybe the rich guy they set me up with that I will eventually marry would be willing to pay my fee just for finding me :)
Sometimes I wonder what I am doing wrong, that I get zero attention. I can go out with a girlfriend to lunch/dinner, and she is single & pretty, and no one talks to us. I go grocery shopping, to the park, the library, ride the train - no one talks to me. I know I can give off a don't talk to me signal - but I don't mean to most of the time...but when people cat cal at you a lot, you just learn to ignore people.
Other people jump from one person to another so quickly, but I can't find one decent one. Is it normal that after 2 years, I have not had a rebound relationship? No, I don't think so. Sure, I am a little picky, but that shouldn't mean I get nothing. And, I don't think that me being a broke, single gal trying to be independent should mean I remain alone because I can't afford to date or pay for help.
Maybe I can set up a fund and ask for donations. If anyone deserves to find love, I do think it is me.
If I knew more people, I could specialize in affordable matchmaking for young adults.
